This strange thing happens occasionally, with seemingly no pattern. I'll be playing a range of songs - no problems, and then load another song file and all I'll get is the Real Drums and THRU. It doesn't matter if the other patches are Real Insts or MIDI, nothing comes out. If I check the charts, all of the channels show that the instruments are playing.

As I am a backup freak,( I have at least 3 of everything ) I'll go to one of my earlier (exact) copies of the same file, load it, and it plays without problem. I've done Return to factory without any success.

Any thoughts?

I've had an issue like that when using the juke box. Exit BIAB, relaunch and all is well. That particular problems strikes me as being some kind of buffer overflow - dunno if it's related to your problem though.

Hi Lawrie,
No, I can exit BIAB and come back later and the problem is still there.

I've 'lost' frozen tracks when changing the style.

Hi Rachael,
When you say "lost", so you mean the tracks disappeared completely, or the tracks were unfrozen?

There was no sound on those tracks. They were still marked as Frozen. I had to Unfreeze and regenerate to fix.

Rachael,
You've given me a clue for a fix. The same thing happened in a session today. I unfroze the tracks and restarted the song - no problems!
Thank you!!!
